Home Learning | Songs and Stories with Mary and Mike

Let’s explore what it means to try something new! With our guest, Tevin Davis, we try lots of new things. We express different emotions with our facial expressions, we sing a new song together, and we take a trip to the Virginia Repertory Theater in Richmond, where we take a backstage tour and learn all about the different parts that come together to put on a show. Theater is for everyone!
